New brewery and restaurant in the works for Ashburn

A new brewery, taproom and restaurant is in the works for a prominent spot in Ashburn that will give it great visibility from busy Route 7. Not coincidentally, it’s called Route 7 Beer Co. and will feature a huge bar, patio seating and large garage doors that will create an indoor-outdoor beer and food experience.

Route 7 is coming to the Lexington 7 building on the north side of Route 7. It’s next door to the new Riverside Square shopping center, home to the Texas Roadhouse, the Oak Health Club and and a new Sheetz gas station and convenience store. It’s in the same building where The Ballpark, a baseball training and recreation facility, is under construction.

The Burn first learned that a brewery was in the works for this spot earlier this year, but we’ve been waiting for details to come out. Now we know a little more about the project.

Route 7 Beer Co. has the “end cap” position in the building, facing south out towards the Leesburg Pike (Route 7). Plans call for a large, nearly 2,000 s.f. seating area with a long bar that runs roughly half the length of the space. Three large garage doors are already in place  and a planned beer garden along the side of the building will have 15 tables or more.

Other portions of the space will be dedicated to a kitchen and the 10-barrel production brewery (a barrel is about 31 gallons). Route 7 Beer Co. is currently hiring a lead brewer who will oversee the beer making process.

Right now, Route 7 is aiming to open its doors in April 2022, but with the many supply chain issues currently, we’ll keep an eye on that target to see if it has to slide.

    That building has all the charm and appeal of a Jiffy Lube.
